Mudslinging and Dodging Questions in Broken Spanish

The Democratic Party kicked off its quest to find a challenger to President Trump over the summer. In total, four debates took place over four days, due to the large number of candidates. The first two of these debates took place on June 26-27 on NBC, and the second two debates took place on July 30-31 on CNN. Key topics in each debate included healthcare reform, immigration, gun control, race relations, and U.S. foreign policy.

It is associated with a financial instrument known as Treasury bonds.
